Amelia Yvonne Ramirez is the fifth Ramirez child, so her parents weren't expecting anything out of the ordinary. Even before they could make it out the door on the way to the hospital, however, Amelia decided she wanted out. "I said, 'No, it can't be coming," said Ramirez, 34. "It can't. That's not even in the realm of reality.'"
But indeed it was. With his wife, Lisa, 31, standing up and leaning on the sofa, Ramirez knelt down and his daughter slid right into his arms. "I basically went by what I had seen the doctors doing for the other four babies," he said. "I thought, 'I can't do this.' But there was nothing else I could do. It was me. That's it. I said, 'Craig, it's all you, man.' "
Little Amelia started crying immediately, a good sign. And with a little bit of help from a 911 operator, Craig used a shoelace from his New Balance running shoes to tie off the umbilical cord. Both Amelia and her parents are doing great.
Ramirez says he can't wait to hear the 911 tape of his call, but he's not looking forward to the delivery jokes when he returns to UPS. "Wow, I can't believe I delivered one of my children," he said. "I'm glad it went well... My work is going to have a field day."
